Before you panic, you might want to ask just how high his bile acids were. If they were slightly elevated, then repeat the test. It is possible that ultra-high protein content food (40%) can skew the results. Try repeating the tests with a food of 21-26% protein content.
If the bile acids were sky high (in the triple digits), then it needs to be investigated. An ultrasound can show major shunts, but there is also a possibility of micro shunts that are treated very well with dietary management.
Don't worry - if he is showing no symptoms, the prognosis should be very good.
